Event description

Description

Presenters:

Dr Aimee Blackledge, Dr Shirley Cooper & Dr Eli Saetnan, LDC Development Programme

This one-day workshop offers new researchers the opportunity to explore how to take ownership of the PhD. Through discussions and activities, you will identify the milestones and planning processes involved in pursuing a PhD and learn how to successfully work with your supervisor. You will also have an opportunity to introduce your research to fellow researchers and plan personal objectives in order to achieve your longer-term professional ambitions.

In this workshop you will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the processes and milestones in the PhD by creating a project plan for the PhD
  • Identify the opportunities for your own professional development to achieve longer terms goals and become a successful researcher.
  • Gain a greater understanding of how you can improve and develop the supervisory relationship
  • Network with other PhD researchers to gain a wider understanding of the research environment


The highly experiential format for this workshop offers many opportunities to share your own experiences and gain advice from other PGRs.

This workshop wil be repeated on the following dates
